Foster Information

Foster Information

Pug Patrol Rescue Australia (PPRA) is a not for profit rescue charity committed to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of pugs and pug crosses. We would not be who we are without our dedicated team of volunteers.


Becoming a foster carer is not just about having a ‘pug’ at home. The most important role of a foster carer is to welcome a PPRA rescue into your home and care for them as if they were one of your own.


Many of our rescues come from horrible places; they have been locked up cages, left outside or alone in garages. Therefore, as a foster carer, you are vital in helping with their rehabilitation, which may include toilet training, learning how to socialise with other dogs and people, as well as learning how to walk on a lead.


Whilst a PPRA foster is in your care, you will be required to transport the rescue to and from one of our PPRA partner vets, assist in finding the rescue a new home through applications we receive, as well as, arranging meet and greets and undertaking home checks.   Although it may sound like quite a lot to do, becoming a foster carer is a rewarding experience!
